HUGO, Minn. (WCCO) — The State Patrol identified the pedestrian who was struck and killed by two different vehicles on Interstate 35E Wednesday night.

The State Patrol said the collision occurred near I-35E and Tart Lake Road shortly after 6 p.m.

Forty-six-year-old Tushar Gupta was standing behind a stalled vehicle, when he “for an unknown reason” jumped in front of the first vehicle, the Patrol said.

A second vehicle behind the first also struck Gupta, who was already down in the roadway.

Gupta was pronounced dead at the scene. Neither of the drivers were injured.

Southbound I-35E was closed for a while, but has been reopened.
